BUXOM Shadow Bar - Custom Eye Shadow Palettes

Buxom Cosmetics has released a brand new line of eye shadows you can completely customize to create your own 6-pan palette. You can also buy the shadows individually if you aren't down to commit to 6 shadows and if you just can't choose between all 40 shades, there are 3 pre-made palettes you can purchase for $40 as well

Each 6-pan palette retails for $40. The single shadows can be purchased for $14. Obviously, it's a better deal to just splurge and make your own palette ;)
Application: All shadows blended smoothly. I didn't notice any patchiness or fall out while experimenting with the colors. Some shades seemed to apply better with my finger  but most went on fine with a brush.

Pigmentation: ALL of the shimmer/metallic finish shadows were extremely pigmented! I can't express how buttery smooth they are. I would definitely invest in a few of them if you are looking into a palette. The matte and satin finish shades didn't seem to be AS pigmented but, don't get me wrong, they were still great quality - it's just hard to beat the consistency of the metallic finishes!

Colors: The full line contains 40 shades. I think that's definitely a great selection to choose from. There are several unique duo-chrome colors, basic neutrals and colorful options!

Wear: The formula of the shadows is supposed to be infused with "primer technology" so I made it a point to not wear primer anytime I wore the shades. I was impressed. I didn't notice any creasing despite my oily eye lids! The shades proved to hold up all day.

Overall Thoughts: I love these palettes and shadows! The formula is incredible. I wasn't disappointed with any of the shades and I love the "custom" concept. The size of the shadows are also larger than a standard shadow in a palette (ex. Urban Decay Naked Palettes)
Swatches (Top to Bottom): 24K Stilettos, Glitz Factor, Cool Caviar, Pure Platinum, No Faux & Patent Leather
Swatches (From Left to Right): Diamond Darling, Star Treatment, Bold Bling, Filthy Rich, Designer or Die, & Invite Only
Wearing "Invite Only" and "Bold Bling"

  1. I love the idea of being able to create you very own palette! You picked some gorgeous colors! The 2nd palette is my favorite!

    1. Thank you! I loved both palettes! the colorful shadows are definitely a bit more pigmented though!

  2. This is such a great idea! Also 24k Stilettos is BEAUTIFUL! Caught my eye right away. Love it!

  3. Hope I can get these in England. They look amazing. $40 is actually quite reasonable for six eyeshadows. Think it works out at about £20.

  4. Lovely colors. Create your own palette is a great idea!

  5. You know your projects stand out of the herd. There is something special about them. It seems to me all of them are really brilliant! dallas gold and silver dallas tx

  6. During its underlying years, cosmetics were limited to the bounds of a room where they were set up from regular fixings. Cosmetics had not yet discovered any business use however it was traded among ladies. Glitter eyeshadow

  7. Good post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Appreciate it! buying likes on instagram app
